"It's been the story of our season so far, for sure. We haven't been playing well enough in first halves and got punished.
"It was a fairly tight game for the first 20 minutes, they obviously got their goal... then the mistake [from Eric Dier] for the second goal has really hurt us in a big game."
After a disappointing first-half performance, the home fans booed their own team. Kane added:
"There's moments where there's tension around the stadium when someone maybe gives the ball away. But to be a big team and big players you have to be able to handle that and not let it affect you for the rest of the game.
"Our home support has been incredible, you saw them in the second half there really pushing us on. Of course there's going to be times when people make mistakes and I think that's the time people need to be behind us, but you have to be able to handle that as a player."
"We've got players playing in different positions, we've been unfortunate with injuries in the attacking part of our team,"

"But it was great to see Dejan back for 30 minutes, he's been a fantastic player for us.
"Whoever plays we still feel like we can create chances and we did that second half... big moments in big games are what makes the difference and we didn't do well enough on those today."
